Chocolate Raspberry Protein Balls

Chocolate Raspberry Protein Balls Disguised as Truffles

These decadent rose-coloured gems may look like chocolate truffles but are protein balls in disguise. Soft, creamy, and chocolaty, they are also dusted with freeze-dried raspberries, giving them a gorgeous, bright look and a bold, fruity flavour that complements the chocolate perfectly.

No baking, no weird ingredients, and they take just 15 minutes to prepare! Each 70-calorie ball offers three grams of protein and one gram of fibre. Enjoy two for a snack approved by nutritionists to help you lose weight! Oh, and the fact that they taste like a dessert is a complete bonus. Whip up a batch and keep them in the fridge to grab after a workout or when sugar cravings strike — with only three grams of sugar per ball, you won't have to worry about crashing from dessert.
